A Pink Baby Wrap for Samantha!!!! ........................................
I made this with a Fingeringweight yarn so it is really nice and light for her...
Last night I started a top in a light DK weight yarn and it seemed like I was knitting with worsted weight and big needles (they were a 6)..After working on fingering and size 2 needles it is so awkward to work with even a DK weight...But I'm sure it will go faster than the fingering...
I think now is the time to make something with that laceweight yarn I have so it won't seem much thinner than the fingering.. Only thing is I can't think of what to make with it.. I wanted to something like a laceweight little baby dress but I can't come up with anything just yet.. Guess I am just going to have to make up my own design for it!!!

So delicate. I love working with tiny yarn and tiny needles but I haven't tried any lace weight yet.

Beautiful job.

Penny,
Do you want to use it single-stranded? You are asking for a LOT OF WORK! It just wouldn't hold up, either, with wear, I don't think. That's why it's really for "lace work", but I think if you doubled it , it would work for a little thicker than fingering. ( I can't believe you STILL haven't used that stuff up yet!!)
And your little Short Sleeved Wrap sweater is just perfect!

What a beautiful little top! No surprise though, all the thing you make are gorgeous. Can't wait to see what you do with the lace weight.
